Design Studio Development Challenges Building an application from scratch in SAP Design Studio is a challenging task, which involves a number of steps like design and functionality developments, creation of custom CSS classes, fine tuning of component’s properties and methods via scripts and eventually, putting all of these tasks to work together.

SAP Design Studio Challenges The main paradigm of the Design Studio is being a tool, that acts as an Application builder, flexible enough, to develop any kind of application: Operational Reports, Dashboards or Mobile Visuals.

One of the main challenges is to make it flexible, functional and good looking. The process of visual enhancement in Design Studio is challenging and involves:  Creation and Implementation of custom CSS’s  Creation and pixel – precise placement of images and icons  Adjustment of the entire work area to different screen resolutions  Inheritance of the design style, look and feel to other reports  Filling containers and page books placeholders with other components like charts, tables, texts and filters  Writing scripts for functional interactivity  Creation of different themes and templates to Desktop and Mobile (Tablet and Smartphone) environments Depending on the company’s corporate reporting requirements, these challenges may turn into extremely time consuming tasks, and involve wide range of competencies and expertise Use SkyTemplates to Meet the Challenges Usage of SkyTemplates dramatically shortens the process of BI Applications design in SAP Design Studio.
